Ought-to-be Octagon

Building a circular turret from stone or other masonry material is fairly easy, but most homes in the United States have a wooden frame of 2-by-4s or 2-by-6s. To create truly circular walls with this type of construction is very complicated. There's a compromise approach that works well: Design and build the turret as if it were an octagon, except where it connects to the walls and roof of the house.
